CINCINNATI (AP) -- If the presidential election was based on the number of top singers a candidate could rally to his side, it appears President Barack Obama would win in a landslide. And in the final days of the campaign, Obama is calling on many of his celebrity buddies to help get out the vote. This past Saturday, Stevie Wonder played an unannounced concert for voters who were waiting to vote early in Cleveland. He also opened a rally for Obama at the arena at the University of Cincinnati. The president has nearly 200 actors, musicians, authors, athletes and others who have been pressed into action as his surrogates, urging people to vote for his re-election. The list includes Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Crosby, Stills and Nash and former President Bill Clinton.
